Latest Windows 10 update still can not please

The Windows 10 October 2018 Update (version 1809), still doesn’t appeal. The proportion of Windows 10 systems running on the latest version of the OS has doubled in the past month, but at 21 percent it is still far behind the previous version. That’s what a new report from AdDuplex says.

AdDuplex analyzed more than 100,000 Windows 10 systems in its advertising network and found that 21.2 percent are running Update on the October 2018. Although the AdDuplex figures cannot be extrapolated on a one-to-one basis to the entire Windows population, they usually give a good idea of the trends.

Although this is almost double what we saw last month, it is still far from the dominant April 2018 Update (71.6%), it sounds in the report. With only a few months to go until the next Windows 10-update mainstream wanted to be, it is unclear whether some pcs will have to install two important updates within a short time or go straight from [the April 2018 Update] to [the next major feature update].

Difficult update

The course of the Windows 10 October 2018 Update was anything but flawless. The installation files were originally made available at the beginning of October, but were soon taken offline again due to a bug that made files disappear. Microsoft solved the problem, promised to restore the lost files and felt confident enough in mid-November to put the update files back online. 24 hours later, however, bugs were found again and Microsoft blocked the update on a lot of machines.

It wasn’t until mid-December that the October update was offered again via Windows Update for users who manually search for new updates. Since mid-January, a phased automatic roll-out is underway and adoption is starting to increase, although it is clearly at a slower pace than previous updates.
